Gwyneth Paltrow is bareing it all for her birthday.
A businesswoman who turns 50 next week is celebrating her milestone while looking back and embracing her “saggy skin” and “wrinkles.”
Paltrow took to Instagram to share an unfiltered black-and-white bikini photo of herself leaping into the air. She captioned her post, “Meditations about milestones.”
Gwyneth Paltrow told Hailey Bieber’s celebrity that kids have to “work twice as hard” in Hollywood.
Paltrow linked to a Goop blog post titled “Approaching 50,” explaining how she came to “accept” her aging body.
“My body is a map of all the daily evidence, not timeless. A collection of marks and irregularities that dog-ear chapters. Oven burn scars, windows long ago.” Fingers bumped against, the birth of a child..silver hair and fine lines,” she wrote.
Paltrow has a milestone birthday on Tuesday.
The Goop founder said that while he “strives for good health” and does his best to live a long life, he continues to accept the changes his body experiences over time.
“I embrace my scars, loose skin, and wrinkles. I embrace my body, my need to be perfect, to look perfect, to defy gravity, to defy logic, to defy humanity.” I accept my humanity,” said Paltrow.
She went on to write that she was ready to “transition” into her 50s, and that she had dealt with her past mistakes, but said she wasn’t looking to “go back in time and fix them.”
The “Shakespeare in Love” actress also opened up about a long list of future plans.

“I want to slow down. I want to step back a little… I want to cook more dinner. I want to see misunderstandings turn into understanding,” Paltrow added.
The 49-year-old actress has two children with ex-husband Chris Martin, 18-year-old daughter Apple and 16-year-old son Moses.

She concluded her essay with a dedication to her children.
“Thinking about my children, who are now old enough to remember this ‘big’ birthday of mine in their own adulthood,” Paltrow wrote.
“What it was like to be 50 will be filled and broken at the same time, much later, when you can look back from a higher place, perhaps at 50 (that’s life).
